Mosonmagyarovar

2.8
Mosonmagyaróvár is a town in Győr-Moson-Sopron county in northwestern Hungary. It lies close to both the Austrian and Slovakian borders and has a population of 32752.Mosonmagyaróvár used to be two separate towns, Magyaróvár (Ungarisch Altenburg) and Moson (Wieselburg). The town of Moson was the original capital of Moson county in the Kingdom of Hungary, but the county seat was moved to Magyaróvár during the Middle Ages. The two towns were combined in 1939, and by now almost all signs of dualism have disappeared, as the space between the two towns has become physically and culturally developed. Due to the name's length, Mosonmagyaróvár is also referred to as Óvár amongst locals and Moson by foreigners. The Hansági Museum can be found in Mosonmagyaróvár.EtymologyThe name Moson comes from the Slavic Musun, which means "castle in the marsh".Magyaróvár literally means "ancient Hungarian castle" in Hungarian, though the Magyar- prefix was only added to the name after confusion with a similarly named town in Austria called Németóvár, which literally means "ancient German castle". The "ancient castle" being referred to is the ruins of the Roman fortress, Ad Flexum.The names were simply combined when the two towns were administratively unified.
Mosonmagyarovar is in Gyor-Moson-Sopron County. Take a peek at our custom trip planner: Mosonmagyarovar and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
